    I have had a problem with my enter key since the first month I owned my Dell.
    It's still under warrenty, but I bought it online and would have to send it in to get fixed.
    I'm leaving for Vegas on the 25th of Sept and plan on sending it in then.

    The problem is that it sticks. It still works but I have to aim my finger and put extra pressure on that key.
    Kind of makes it hard when you are used to typing really fast.

    So are there any tips for cleaning a laptop keyboard?

    I would really appreciate any help

    Thanks

    I'm no expert on keyboards here, but I have a couple suggestions you could try. Have you tried using compressed air around that key? In case there is any crap under it. The other suggestion is, do you know if you can safely remove the key and reattach it without difficulty? Just throwing those ideas out to try to help.

    I disassemble mine and rinse it in distilled water... make sure to let it dry completely
